Heater core

Question

Guys i may have to replace the heater core in my 2001 190 vvt-i . I have a leak and the carpet is wet more than likely the core but may be a hose but doubtful . So my question is does the dash have to come out on the gen 7 to replace it like it does on earlier models . Had to take it out on my gen 5 when i replaced that one.

if you buy a new matrix then you can do it without removing the dash as it will come with new clips 

 

A used one - if you open the clips you wont get them back on - so I supply them with the pipes as well. to fit it complete - to fit that the dash needs to come out. A lot of people chops the pipes half way on the old and new and join with rubber hose so that you dont have to get the dash out. 

 

I have one good matrix left if you do want to get a used one.

Can you pm me a price with delivery please Ams. Chopping the pipes off and rejoining whit hose is a good idea.

taking the dash out isnt a hard job its just time and space consuming. If I was in your shoes I would just take the dash out. makes life simple.

 

 

:brickwall:  I call bullshit here - Have you ever actually taken a gen 7 dashboard out?
